QB Depth Charts & Injury Reports
Week 0 | Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 | Week 6 | Week 7 | Week 8 | Week 9 | Week 10 | Week 11 | Week 12 | Week 13 | Conference Championships| Army-Navy | Bowls
The QB Depth Charts & Injury Reports show the top two quarterback options (more if needed) of all 133 teams. They’re followed by notes on what happened over the past week in addition to any other newsworthy items.
Keep in mind, not every team releases a depth chart or an injury report. The Big Ten requires an “availability report” be released two hours before game time that shows injury questions. Other than that, there is no consequence for teams to mislead on depth charts and injuries to potentially gain an advantage.
This will never be perfect, but I spend a lot of time and research on this page to make sure it’s the most accurate resource for QB news on the internet.

Sawyer Robertson (Stats)
RJ Martinez (Stats)
L 38-6 vs. Texas
